Comfortable thanks to a thoughtful mix of well-padded heel cup and high-quality footbed, the Pro Road is a good choice for those with medium to narrow feet.



The ErgoStrap system and two-position ratchet provide a very secure fit - even pushing hard out of the saddle on climbs and recreating big-gear sprints on the turbo failed to induce any slippage.

The solid full-carbon sole delivers good power transfer with high levels of stiffness, the only trade-off being no venting underfoot. That said, the generous fabric venting on top should keep summer feet cool enough.
